This is a great message by Robert Scoble on his blog.
…If you define yourself by who is following you youâ€™ll always feel inadequate. After all, you canâ€™t control your followers and any idiot can follow people. But, define yourself by who you are following and you can really build something of high value.
People still arenâ€™t getting this. They didnâ€™t get how I was using Twitter and still donâ€™t. I follow the worldâ€™s best early adopters, business executives, and entrepreneurs. I really donâ€™t care if I have a single follower. If I defined myself by my followers Iâ€™d always feel inadequate. If I define myself by the people who I follow, well, I follow the smartest, richest, coolest, funniest people in the world. That makes me smarter, richer, cooler, and funnier.
